Nike: Art of a Champion

Nike Basketball commissioned a painting to celebrate Kobe Bryant's timeless performance during Game 4 of the 2006 NBA playoffs. This image accompanied the 2018 rerelease of Kobe's 2006 "Protro'" shoe. Each element of the still life corresponds with a piece of trivia about that specific game or about Kobe's career.
